 OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS

PILOTENKUECHE, Leipzig / Germany

ROUND54 January - March 2023

 

"PILOTENKUECHE" is an international art program based in Germany's new art capital Leipzig. The independent project is run by artists to support and empower artists.

 

The project invites within the “International Residency Program” selected artists from around the world to come and work in the 465m², fully remodeled space for three months, with 24h studio access. Each accepted artist is offered a partial stipend in kind that represents our unpaid working hours. We maintain engagements with several partners and introducing our artists to these, make it possible for participants to cooperate with and exhibit in other venues. Our concept encourages experimental strategies aiming to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something collectively. In a group of around twelve international artists together with two local artists participating in our program activities, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one's work, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over. 

 

The Program activities are:

  • studio visits and open studio if the group is interested 
  • contact to the local art scene, 
  • organized museum tours, 
  • scheduled art critiques, 
  • published artists spotlight on each artist
  • professional install and exhibition pictures
  • two group exhibitions in interesting venues.

 

 The Studio space consists of:

  • one furnished up to 36m² large space per artist in our 465m² large communal loft hall including wifi and all side costs (water, underfloor heating, energy, kitchen, toilet, etc.)
  • desk, little storage space
  • depends on the work of the artists, but two walls to work on
  • large windows 
  • approximately twelve artists per month working in the space 
  • furnished shared tea kitchen with fridge, microwave, hotplate

When did the fairytales change

Share

City:

Eligibility:

We'd like to suggest you participate in an open call on the topic of Fairytales. Most likely no matter in what culture we rose, we were all told or read stories and fairytales from early childhood. They influenced us, they shaped us from the very beginning.
We suggest you think about what place fairytales have in our lives now. Are they something kind and warm that helps us get through the ever-worsening times? Or maybe they get crueler and crueler as we get older and more hard-hearted? Or maybe this word changed its meaning completely over the years and decades?

The exhibition will run from July 15th to July 20th. The deadline for application is July 9th.

Type of art:

We accept any form of visual art for this exhibition.
- It can be a digital photo art that can be used in a slideshow;
- It can be a video art that would be filmed on a wall and on the window screens (not longer than 15 minutes);
- It can be books, magazines, or other literature-related physical objects;
- It can be paintings, sculptures, or printed digital art.

Important. This exhibition is not for kids, but we would appreciate it if your artwork doesn't include explicit nudity and brutal violence.

As the space in the gallery is limited, so we cannot accept artworks that are more than 2m x 2m x 2m in size.

Digital photo art is accepted from all over the world; physical artworks are accepted only from artists within Germany. Delivery, return and insurance in this case should be covered by the artist.

TRANSITION – International Open Call for analogue photography

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Fotogalerie Friedrichshain and analogueNOW! are pleased to announce their first curatorial collaboration, and invite film photographers and artists working with analogue techniques to participate in their upcoming international group exhibition on the theme « Transition ».

Either individual or collective, social or environmental, gradual or brutal, unexpected or chosen, a transition can be defined as a process of change, from a beforeness to an afterwards. Transitions can happen on different levels simultaneously: for example, while climate change is a complex transition, its effects can be observed in different places, contexts and scales. Similarly, social evolutions are reflected in personal lives, and vice versa an individual’s experience of change can pave the way to a larger process. 

If the notion of transition is inherent in all forms of life, our present days seem to be characterized by an acceleration of history, so that some transitions once only observable with the distance of time now seem to be perceptible on the scale of a human’s lifetime. This exhibition is intended as a moment of deceleration, a breath necessary to think about recent and ongoing transitions.

The exhibition will showcase analogue photography projects focused on narrating change, capturing development or decline, and witnessing or challenging the turn of events. We give the topic free for interpretation and welcome other readings of the theme. The submitted projects should be recent: either ongoing or completed in the past 5 years maximum. Long-term projects started years ago and recently completed (within the past 5 years) or still ongoing are accepted. In this sense, works that are based on archival material can be submitted.

 

Exhibition dates: September 2. 2022 – October 14. 2022

 

Location: 
Fotogalerie Friedrichshain Helsingforser Pl. 1 10243 Berlin Germany
Deadline: 
30/June/2022

«DO NOT GO OUT THE WINDOW»

 

There is a theory in global politics and social studies called The Overton Window, it clearly shows us how human society can adapt to any changes, both positive and negative. Never mind how unacceptable were originally new rules, when they just arise, after a while, with the right propaganda activities any rules become in the norm category. According to this theory, a lot of totalitarian societies arose, which remember world history. Begun as a categorically disapproved of changes in society, boycotted and protested, after years, they led to the fact that totalitarian and authoritarian became the basis of the state system. But this theory can work not only with negative developments, for example, but some social phenomena, like slavery or infringements of rights of different social groups, also passed away becoming relics.

A vivid illustration of the phenomenon of The Overton Window is the situation in modern Russia. Before the 24th of February 2022, the majority of the citizens of the country can't imagine what human tragedy will be coming soon. Because even a word war was something unbelievable and disgusting for all normal people. Many Russians have family members, acquaintances, and friends from Ukraine. What’s going wrong? Why couldn't we stop this tragedy? And more importantly, what can we do now, when this terrible word -- war has become a part of our daily lives? Because of the authoritarian politics, many people choose to be silent, to give in to the diktat. Not because they are cruel or bloodlust, it’s because of the fear: fear of the repressions, fear to stay one-on-one with the police and the justice machine, or putting our loved ones at risk.

Many contemporary artists, who live in Russia, have to be silent. Every wrong word can be critical and be regarded as discrediting the Russian army.

But still, some artists remain incredibly brave, they continue to protest the authoritarian and military state, fighting for a better world, and warning others from leaving The Window.

Exactly these authors and their works -- sharp political, and social -- will form the basis of the Don’t leave from the Window exhibition. Like highlights, artworks help us look at ourselves, at our problems, problems with which we don’t have to accept. They help us to remember serious political, economic, social, and environmental problems. Remember that it’s not the norm, and we must continue to stand up for our values and ideals.

We are looking forward to your submissions! Due to the current logistics problems the exhibition will be held 3D

No fee!
